Children’s Book Review and Giveaway: "Half Popped," by Jeff Feuerstein

Have you ever felt sorry for those unpopped or half-popped popcorn kernels at the bottom of your bowl? Instead of being appreciated by popcorn lovers, they’re often relegated to the trash can. But one half-popped kernel wants to change all that by speaking out in the new children’s book, Half Popped!

Written by Jeff Feuerstein, with illustrations by Dayna Brandoff and Alex Miller, this rhyming tale shares the story of Kenny the kernel, who decides to leave his lonely spot at the bottom of the bowl and venture out. Peeking into the refrigerator, he meets all kinds of poor foods like himself, including a baby carrot who feels inferior about his size and a red grape that doesn’t fit in with the green grapes. It’s a similar story in the rest of the kitchen -- plenty of foods that are different from the others. Kenny’s pep talks manage to make them feel better about themselves, but what can make Kenny feel worthy, too?

I won’t spoil the ending, but kids will cheer for Kenny as he finds his own happiness. Half Popped encourages kids to see themselves as others see them and to appreciate being different. Written in rhyme, with artwork uniquely combining photography and illustration, this is a clever story that children will want to read over and over again. And they’ll never neglect those half-popped kernels in the popcorn bowl, either! Learn more about Half Popped at www.kennythekernel.com.
